Thanks so much for your informative post, Benton.  It was great to spend
some time with you at the ETC opening on Thursday night.  It's so
interesting to hear how the ETC tape library, a small portion of which is
being screened at the ETC show (about 40 of some 3,000 titles), also
played an informative role in the artmaking going on with the ETC
machines.  Especially important to recall is the strong role played by
Woody and Steina Vasulka, along with Nam June Paik, in the early days of
ETC, whose emphasis on conceptual experimentation seemed to inform later
works produced in the facility, which, in turn, have had such an
instrumental international impact on thinking the conceptualization of
video art and practice.

Thanks so much for sharing you work in the exhibition.
